Popular skate ramp is reinstalled at King George V playing fields in Crewe
Cheshire East Council has reinstalled a popular skate ramp at King George V Playing Fields in Crewe.
The previous skate ramp was part of a larger facility on the site and was a heavily- used piece of equipment. This was reluctantly removed in May this year, due to being in a state beyond repair, which gave safety concerns.
The much-missed equipment was replaced with a new ramp which was installed on 19 September. Funding was secured from a government grant.
Councillor Brian Roberts, Cheshire East Council cabinet member with responsibility for green spaces, said: “This is fantastic news for the younger residents in Crewe, who have missed this popular facility. The skate park encourages a healthy lifestyle and allows children to let off some steam with their skateboards or scooters in a safe environment away from road users.”
The skate park is part of a larger outdoor complex on the edge of Crewe, which includes the King George V Playing Fields, Queens Park and the Tipkinder BMX facilities.
